Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have constantly been working in the direction of making Wrexham the best football club out there. Their club recently beat Coventry City in the FA Cup with slow but steady steps. The club, which was thought to be nearly dead, was rejuvenated by these two Hollywood actors.
The very best ❤️

It will be safe to conclude that Reynolds and McElhenney have come has the lucky charms of the club because this is the first time since the late ninety’s that the club has made it into the fourth round of FA club. But how was that made possible?
How did Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney change the map of Wrexham?
When Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney bought the club, they brought along a new hope for it. Both these gentlemen are investing actively in the club members and the club. Last year a huge fund of £18 million was passed by the committee to upgrade the sporting facilities at the club. And all of this was possible due to the efforts of the Canadian actor.
We’re just getting started. ❤️ @Wrexham_AFC

The actors not only helped the club grow physically, but they used their medium of expression in getting the club the fame it deserved. In other words, they used a digital medium to promote the club by making it establish its digital presence. Hence, they planned a documentary on the club with Disney+ where the various aspects of the club and its players were shown.
The show aimed to open up a market for football that is still completely unexplored. The idea behind it was that it might have the same impact on the sport that Drive to Survive had for Formula 1. It is called Welcome to Wrexham, which was released on August 24, 2022.
After the documentary was released, the website of Wrexham saw a drastic growth in its traffic. The recognition boosted new energy in the club’s players, bringing them to the pedestal they deserve. The club has jumped to the second position in the National League. According to Daily Mail, on Saturday, in the third round of the FA Cup, Wrexham beat Coventry 4-3.
Let’s hope their winning streak continues, and we get to see more seasons of Welcome to Wrexham. What are your thoughts on the topic? Do you think that Ryan and Rob helped resurrect the Wrexham club? Let us know in the comments below.
